Summary note
"This book traces of the rise, international growth, and plateau of the LGBTQ movement in Palestine. Sa'ed Atshan argues that queer Palestinian activists, even as they critique empire, are themselves subjected to an empire of critique. Queer Palestine and the Empire of Critique calls for a return to Palestine and ethnography, attention to the queer Palestinian experience on the ground in Palestine/Israel, and a greater awareness of the heterogeneity of LGBTQ Palestinian voices"-- Provided by publisher.
